First things first.. look at that box design! After last months box changed to celebrate the Look Fantastic Beauty Box 1st Birthday, I was hoping they wouldn’t go back to the basic black box this month and they did not let me down! This design is so much nicer then the original black box so I hope it is here to stay! The Look Fantastic October Beauty Box contains 7 products this month, mainly consisting of skincare products. Keep on reading to see what products were included this month..
The first product that caught my eye was obviously the Look Good Feel Better Eye Shading Brush. Not just because it’s a brush and I really need more eye brushes but because there is a very good cause behind the Look Good Feel Better brand. Look Good Feel Better is the only worldwide cancer support charity that provide practical support for women who are struggling with the side effects of cancer and each sale of a Look Good Feel Better brush will have an 8%-12% donation made to the charity. It’s definitely worth considering these brushes next time you go to buy some – amazing quality and so soft!
Next is a product from one of my favourite skincare brands, Nuxe. Featured a fair few times in past boxes, this time round it’s the Reve De Miel Hand and Nail Cream making an appearance. This hand cream is said to be nourishing and protecting containing Chilean rose, avocado, acacia honey and sweet almond precious oils. I love my Soap & Glory Hand Food so I can’t wait to see how this compares!
Another skincare favourite is Elemis and I was so happy to see a product from them because as you probably know, they are a pretty pricey brand! The Hydra-Balance Day Cream is a daily moisturiser for normal to combination skin which I do not have however I will still use. It is meant to keep your complexion soft and supple around the clock and is enriched with meadowsweet extract and hyaluronic acid to lock in essential moisture.
Something I’ve used and loved before is the Murad AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser. This is a really gentle exfoliating cleanser which works two ways by dissolving dead skin cells and renewing the skins texture. This cleanser contains salicylic, lactic and glycolic acids to clarify and brighten dull skin whilst Jojoba beads polish and re-texturise skin, sodium-PCA and jojoba seed oil counteract dryness whilst liquorice extract also provides anti-irritant and anti-inflammatory properties.
This box is definitely not short of skincare products! Another moisturiser in the box is from Monu and it’s their Firming Moisturiser. I really like Monu as a brand and their facial oil has become a staple in my routine. This moisturiser is used by professional therapists and contains only the purest ingredients such as marine collagen and is said to be deeply nourishing and protective as it contains UVA and UVB sunscreen.
The last skincare product comes from Balance Me. The Radiance Face Mask can be used two ways either as a revitalising exfoliating face wash or as a soothing, intensive treatment mask to restore lost moisture and luminosity. This face wash contains natural ingredients such as kaolin clay, palma rosa and lavender.
The only hair product this month is the Percy & Reed No Oil Oil. I actually received this a couple of months back in a Birchbox. Even though at the time, I really liked this product, I actually haven’t used it in a long time! But now that I have another bottle, I’ll definitely give it another go. The No Oil Oil nourishes and repairs hair creating smooth, sleek, silky locks whilst adding volume.
Overall this months box is really good however, I have the same gripe that I had last month – no make up! One product would be nice, so I’m hoping we’ll have one next month! If you like the look of this box you can buy it here for only £15 or you can choose a monthly payment plan.
